Welcome to nUBC!
The nUBC facility at PCIGR officially opened on December 16, 2013. The laboratories and instruments represent an investment of ~$7.5 million and have allowed for significant expansion and improvement of PCIGR’s analytical capacity.
This major project was approved for funding from the Canada Foundation for Innovation (Leading Edge Fund) and the BC Government (Knowledge Development Fund) in 2009, and planning was underway by 2010. Construction of new 2,200 sq. ft. clean laboratories on the ground floor of EOS-Main took place between January and September 2011. By October 2014, all 6 of the new instruments acquired through this project were installed in this state-of-the-art facility.
